Born in Paris in 1826, Frederick eventually settled in America, keeping studios in both the Boston area and New York City. He was a successful landscape and marine painter who painted extensively throughout New England and the Hudson River, as well as the west coast.

Frederick studied in Paris with Theodore Gudin and Auguste Jugelet. Frederick was the only teacher of the talented Winslow Homer. He was a faculty member at the National Academy of Design, where he had become an Associate member. Frederick exhibited his works at the National Academy, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, and the Boston Athenaeum.
